Josh Taylor vs Jose Ramirez takes place at the Theater, a 4500 capacity venue at the Virgin Hotels Las Vegas (formerly known as the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino). Promoter Top Rank has assembled a stunning card that includes Pedro Campa vs Jose Zepeda and Elvis Rodriguez vs Kenneth Sims Jr. Around 2000 roaring fans are in attendance.
Scotland's Taylor and Mexican-born Ramirez are both undefeated and looking to make history tonight, so this match-up is a huge deal in the boxing world. Taylor (17-0, 17 KOs) is the WBA, IBF and Ring Magazine super-lightweight champion, while Ramirez (26-0, 17 KOs) holds the WBO and WBC straps.
“I always believed I would be world champion, that was my dream, but did I think I would be fighting to become undisputed world champion? Deep down, probably not," said Taylor. "To be in a fight of this magnitude for all these titles... it’s just a real ‘pinch me’ moment.”

How to watch Josh Taylor vs Jose Ramirez abroad using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Josh Taylor vs Jose Ramirez rights holders, you won't be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
